Abstract Introduction The long-term benefits of nephron-sparing surgery for kidney cancer depend on patient health. Accordingly, we examined whether receipt of partial nephrectomy varied with baseline comorbidity or functionality among older adults with stage I kidney cancer. Materials and methods Using Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER)-Medicare data from 2000 to 2009, we identified patients treated with partial or radical nephrectomy for stage I kidney cancer. We examined treat...

Objective To assess the national trends in treatment of localized renal tumors among older patients with limited life expectancy. Materials and methods Using the National Cancer Database, we identified older patients (≥70 y) diagnosed with T1 renal cell carcinoma from 2002 to 2011. Primary outcome was the initial treatment—partial nephrectomy (PN), radical nephrectomy, EM, and ablation. Multivariable logistic regression analysis stratified by tumor size (<2, 2–3.9, or 4–7 cm) and age groups (70–...

Abstract Background The purpose of the study was to evaluate the relationships between the patients' clinical characteristics and the growth pattern of SRMs, and to investigate the predictive factors of tumor growth rates in patients initially managed with AS. Materials and Methods We retrospectively reviewed data from our prospectively collected database of 70 patients diagnosed with 72 SRMs between 1996 and 2013. Clinical and demographic data, and linear and volumetric growth rates were record...

Abstract Background Some reports have suggested that nephron-sparing surgery (NSS) may protect against cardiovascular events (CVe) when compared with radical nephrectomy (RN). However, previous studies did not adjust the results for potential selection bias secondary to baseline cardiovascular risk. Objective To test the effect of treatment type (NSS vs RN) on the risk of developing CVe after accounting for individual cardiovascular risk. Design, setting, and participants A multi-institutional c...

Abstract Background This study aimed to evaluate the overall survival (OS) rate and renal function after radical nephrectomy (RN) and partial nephrectomy (PN) in patients aged ⩾65years. Methods Patients who underwent RN ( n =622) or PN ( n =622) for renal cell carcinoma (pT1N0M0) between 1999 and 2011 were propensity-score matched in our multicentre database. To investigate the relative effect of PN on OS according to age, we divided the patients into two age subgroups ( Results The 5-year OS ra...

Abstract Background In the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) randomized trial 30904, nephron-sparing surgery (NSS) was associated with reduced overall survival compared with radical nephrectomy (RN) over a median follow-up of 9.3 yr (hazard ratio: 1.50; 95% confidence interval [CI], 1.03–2.16). Objective To examine the impact of NSS relative to RN on kidney function in EORTC 30904. Design, setting, and participants This phase 3 international randomized trial was ...

Objective To compare overall and cancer-specific survival (CSS) of patients who undergo nonsurgical management (NSM), partial nephrectomy (PN), and radical nephrectomy (RN). NSM is being increasingly used for older patients with early-stage kidney cancer and competing risks of death. However, survival is poorly characterized for this approach compared with surgery with PN or RN. Methods The Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results–Medicare database from 1995 to 2007 was used to identify patien...

Abstract Context With the addition of active surveillance and thermal ablation (TA) to the urologist's established repertoire of partial (PN) and radical nephrectomy (RN) as first-line management options for localized renal cell carcinoma (RCC), appropriate treatment decision-making has become increasingly nuanced. Objective To critically review the treatment options for localized, nonrecurrent RCC; to highlight the patient, renal function, tumor, and provider factors that influence treatment de...

PURPOSE To examine frailty and comorbidity as predictors of outcome of nephron sparing surgery (NSS) and as decision tools for identifying candidates for active surveillance (AS) or tumor ablation (TA). METHODS Frailty and comorbidity were assessed using the modified frailty index of the Canadian Study of Health and Aging (11-CSHA) and the age-adjusted Charlson-Comorbidity Index (aaCCI) as well as albumin and the radiological skeletal-muscle-index (SMI) in a cohort of n = 447 patients with local...

Background: The functional and oncologic outcomes of robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP) in octogenarians are not well studied. We sought to study the perioperative, functional, and oncologic outcomes of RARP in octogenarian men. Methods: Between January 2009 and 2019, 46 patients ≥80 years with localized prostate cancer (PCa) underwent RARP in three high-volume robotic urologic practices in the United States. Clinical and pathologic features, and perioperative and postoperative complica...

Abstract Background The use of a nephron-sparing surgery for the treatment of localized renal masses is being pushed to more challenging cases. However, this procedure is not devoid of risks, and the Radius, Exophytic/Endophytic, Nearness, Anterior/Posterior, Location (RENAL) and Preoperative Aspects and Dimensions Used for an Anatomical (PADUA) classifications are commonly employed in the prediction of complications. Recently, the Simplified PADUA REnal (SPARE) scoring system has been proposed ...

Pentafecta is a major goal in the era of partial nephrectomy (PN). Simplified PADUA REnal (SPARE) nephrometry system was developed to evaluate the complexity of tumor. However, the predictive ability in pentafecta of SPARE system is yet to be determined. The aim of this study was to externally validate the applicability of SPARE nephrometry system in predicting pentafecta achievement after partial nephrectomy, and to examine inter-observer concordance. We retrospectively reviewed data of 207 con...

BACKGROUND: Recent evidence suggests that the "oldest old" patients might benefit of partial nephrectomy (PN), but decision-making for this subset of patients is still controversial. Aim of this study is to compare outcomes of robotic partial (RPN) or radical nephrectomy (RRN) for large renal masses in patients older than 65 years. METHODS: We identified 417>/=65 years old patients who underwent RRN or RPN for cT1b or >/=cT2 renal mass at 17 high volume centers. Propensity score match analysis w...
